Current status

Detailed Description

LXQt is the Qt port and the upcoming version of LXDE, the Lightweight Desktop Environment. It is the product of the merge between the LXDE-Qt and the Razor-qt projects: A lightweight, modular, blazing-fast and user-friendly desktop environment.

Benefit to Fedora

LXQt will make Fedora more interesting for users who look for a slick and slim desktop environment.

Therefore, look also at the page of the LXQt Special Interest Group (LXQt SIG).

User Experience

LXQt is a fast and stable desktop environment already usable on production desktops. It will not get in the user's way. It is focused on being a Classic Desktop with a modern Look & Feel.


LXQt depends on some other components already present in Fedora:

  • kf5-kwindowsystem library
  • polkit-qt5-1 library
  • libqtxdg library
  • qterminal ( subject to change if decided )
  • Openbox Window Manager (current version is sufficient)

Contingency Plan

  • Contingency mechanism: Don't ship LXQt or don't announce it as feature.
  • Contingency deadline: Beta Freeze
  • Blocks release? No
  • Blocks product? None
